in place. >> is john boehner sticking to the old rule, the denny hastert rule, that you need a majority to bring it up for a vote. if the majority is not there of the republicans who are the majority in the house, he is not going to bring it up for a vote, or are they discarding that give this current crisis? >> he's never been officially wedded to that majority of the majority idea. that has certainly been his goal in most if not all of the legislation that he's brought to the floor. this and a few others have tested that goal for sure, but look, this is something that republican speakers, hastert included, starting with hastert, have wanted to do to make sure they have the support with within, to make sure that there isn't any kind of revolt, there isn't a question of their leadership. even though it has not been an easy road for john boehner, and that has been an understatement, i have not detected any real sentiment in the rank and file to have anybody but john boehner as their leader. to be honest with you, based on what boehner has gone through, it is hard to see anyone wanting th

boehner and then you know hough it's unwound all this time. so this has been, as you point out, a months' long process and tonight i don't think he'll take a chest thumping victory lap but i do think that he will call it a victory. >> the president took some heat yesterday for comments that he made that some thought were inappropriate or the tone was inappropriate. he's got to watch tone at this point? >> yeah. i mean, yes and no. he -- i don't expect him to adopt the same tone. he's speaking in front of reporters, he's not speaking in front of an audience of supporters and so the mood is different. and he will be probably if i had to guess, i was looking up some of his speeches from the campaign where he said, you know, the goal -- we will decide this issue during the campaign. i believe he'd say the tax cuts should be extended for middle class americans but the wealthiest must pay more and this issue will be decided by this election and that will be the end. and so he is -- i wouldn't be surprised if he sort of wrapped up that message tonight and said this was decided by the election a

forward with if biden doesn't get too much resistance tonight and speaker boehner agrees to put it on the floor in the coming days. >> let's bring in a democratic senator, jeff merkley of oregon is joining us. you're getting ready to go into this democratic caucus meeting with the vice president, joe biden. what are you hearing right now? are you on board? >> we haven't heard the detail said, but there's three main things we want to nail down. first is fairness to people who versus those who are best off in society. the second is are we looking down the road to another fiscal cliff, such as sequestering or the dent ceiling kicking in a few month from now, and the third piece is is it financially responsible. are we producing a deal that will actually put us on a path to a financially stable future. those three things are the big questions that have been raised today that we have been raising, a number of us, with our elected leaders. they have been working to try to find a path that will address those. >> on those points, we seem to know, basically, what the deal is on the fairn

be a measure to require democratic support in the house which speaker boehner was not relying on then. you look at this lo the judgically, this is entirely possible to get through congress, the issue is, it is politically possible to get through congress? we don't know the answer to that. >> thank you, brianna keilar. >>> police are investigating whether nbc's david gregory violated d.c. gun laws when he displayed what he described as a 30-round magazine during a "meet the press" interview. >> here is a magazine that carries 30 bullets. isn't it possible that we got rid of ese and said you can only have a magazine that carries five bullets or ten bullets, isn't it possible we could reduce the carnage? >> i don't believe that will make one difference. >> we don't know if that was authentic or a prop, but having a large-capacity ammunition device like a magazine is illegal in washington, d.c. if it holds more than ten rounds of ammunition, whether or not it's attached to a firearm. >>> los angeles, pushing up its gun buyback, in light of the newtown massacre it was originally set for next may. in
